DESOLATE SHRINE – Deliverance From The Godless Void

Finnish Death Metal outfitters Desolate Shrine has been a band I’m not too associated checking out their catalog but after hearing the latest full-length through Dark Descent Records entitled Deliverance From The Godless Void, boy was I in for a treat! Taking the elements of misanthropic and occultist style of death metal, Deliverance From The Godless Void is far more complex, polished and musically speaking this is the band’s most tightest material to date. Their musical compositions and deadly assaults […]

Founded by the members from Blood Incantation, Colorado’s death doom metal band Spectral Voice have created a monolithic, threatening and crushing albums of 2017 with Eroded Corridors Of Unbeing being the debut full-length.

DROWNING THE LIGHT – Varcolaci Rising

Australia’s Drowning The Light are one of most darkest, creative, imaginative and unforgettable black metal bands I stumbled across after becoming a fan several years ago to witness 2015’s Dark Adversary Productions of From The Abyss which still stands this very day one of the most well crafted and ambitious albums I’ve heard in recent memory. Two years later, Azgorh resurrected himself from the coldest, lurky abyss to create the latest chapter of Drowning The Light’s catalog with the newest […]

ANTZAAT – The Black Hand Of The Father

Belgium’s Antzaat present us with their debut release titled The Black Hand of the Father. Released September 25th through Immortal Frost Productions, this album is cold, grim and pure black metal done right. The album is straight in your face, battle ready black metal that sticks to the proven path but takes a few twists to add their own sound. The tempo stays pretty consistent but with multiple listens, you can hear moments of slowdowns that stand out and fit […]

Years later we have the newest album from Nuclear Blast Records entitled Anticult. With this release the musicianship is tighter, surpasses most and even some of the oldest material which surprisingly […]

MUNICIPAL WASTE – Slime and Punishment

Virginia’s crossover thrash metal outfit Municipal Waste are back and this time they’re gonna fuck you up with their sixth full-length album Slime and Punishment. Prior to 2012’s The Fatal Feast (Waste In Space) this is a well written, almost addictive album filled with fast, aggressive, thrash metal riffs mixed with rebellious raw hardcore punk vibe sensation of the 80’s. This album is incredibly embodiment of loud-hard- fast party up atmosphere of such legendary acts including Anthrax, Suicidal Tendencies and […]
